  1. Prologue
  3. In the beginning there lived a kingdom above all kingdoms ruled by a breed of ponies known as Moth Ponies.
  4. This kingdom was glorious possessing, & completely wielding magic beyond all recognition in the world thanks to their goddess Saturniidae.
  5. But far from this glorious kingdom to the south lied another kingdom who wasn't living in prosperity, and lived under a hard iron hoof.
  6. These ponies who lived under the iron hoof of a Maleficent Queen were known as Bee Ponies.
  7. Seeking the power, land, and life the moth ponies had the Maleficent Queen of the Bee Ponies tried to recreate the magic Queen Saturniidae had used to launch her kingdom into prosperity, but instead had failed for she filled her copy of Saturniidae magic with jealousy, lust, hunger, and sin creating a rift.
  8. And then from this rift a certain darkness came. This darkness filled with negative emotions then took the Queen, then her entire kingdom plunging it despair.
  10. When the despair of the bee pony kingdom started to spread Saturniidae sent her best lords, and knights to vanquish it all of whom never returned. Then upon the despair reaching her kingdoms outskirts Saturniidae could see why her best of lords & knights had failed for out of the despair their came a monster who had no name, no words to describe it except only that "It.".
  11. Fearing for her kingdoms survival Saturniidae herself faced "It." hurling all bolts of magic, disease, death, and fire to bring it down.
  12. After 100 days & nights of fighting "It" fell, and the blood from it spilled pouring into the streets, and land of Saturniidae's kingdom transforming her subjects into abominations.
  13. Filled with rage, hate, and despair herself Saturniidae endlessly sought for a way to undo the curse to her kingdom, and one day she did by figuring out that if she stole enough life energy from a civilization of ponies she could temporarily undo the curse of "It's" blood.
  14. Trying it out Saturniidae was able to undo the curse of the blood "It." had done to her kingdom, but for how long the curse was to be undone nopony knew... as Saturniidae was the only one to know, and she withdrew herself from her own kingdom after temporarily lifting the curse.
  16. Now a thousand years later on the outskirts of the moth pony kingdom rumors of the return of the curse, and abominations have resurfaced, and to make sure that the rumors are not true those towns & cities that are rumored to be infected have been sealed, and cut off from the rest of the moth kingdom.
  17. You however just so happen to be one of the residents of one of the rumored cities trapped inside it like a rat with your friends trying to figure out a way to get out...

  35. >Hearing a few hoof steps come up behind you turned to face a familiar mare moth pony you somehow knew wearing a raggedy cloak, a blonde bold cut mane, crystal blue eyes. Talking to you she said "Now that she's out of the way its time to permanently end the curse. Take the throne Nyx, and release the life gathered so it all may come to an end." which made you take a step towards the throne before the world started to shift, and you found yourself at the golden cathedral door.
  36. >Hearing a voice come from your side you turned your head to see you were standing next to a mare moth pony with a rusty red coat you somehow recognized, but didn't know her name. Listening to her she said "Your making the right choice Nyx. Your no pawn of Sphingidae's descendant. You already know you can't save everypony from their fate of the rot. It's better to just walk away with the life gained from this adventure" which made you raise a hoof up to the cathedrals door, and push it open where a wave of darkness overtook you.
